Craig Robinson, fresh out of Space Academy, has taken command of the Jupiter 2. Robinson takes his younger brother Link along on a routine mission from Earth to Saturn to drop off geologist Dina Carmichael. En route, the ship is battered by a meteor shower. Damaged, the Jupiter 2 is forced to land on an uncharted planet.

Almost immediately upon landing, the crew is greeted by three Throgs who urge them to run into the forest. The Earth crew does not understand the urgency until a group of Tyranos fly in, firing weapon,s on Flying Platforms. Under attack, the Robinson party welcomes assistance from a Throg named Lar. Lar explains that the Tyranos have always been violent since they arrived on the planet and that his people have been unable to communicate with them. The Throgs are not technologically advanced so if the Jupiter 2 has any hope of leaving the planet they will need help from the Tyranos. Craig Robinson plans to help make peace between the two species so that he can get his crew safely off-world.

Meanwhile, Dr. Smith, Robon and Link Robinson have discovered a Throg youngster named Brack who plays a marbles-like game with diamonds! Smith is entranced and tries to trade for several diamonds. Brack refuses but agrees to play for them. Smith, however, is unable to defeat the child. The diamonds, they learn, are a product of the Tyrano technology. They are created somehow by the power source that keeps the Tyranos alive. Dr. Smith and Link travel to Tyrano territory in search of diamonds.

Robon warns Craig and Dina of the danger and the trio mount a rescue operation with the help of Lar. Dina deduces that the Tyranos must always travel in pairs because they are energy-based; one is positively charged and the other negatively charged. With this information, the crew is able to formulate methods of stunning the aliens. They make their way to the Tyrano city and free Dr. Smith and Link who have been captured.

While there, the discover and shut down the Tyrano energy source so the aliens have no choice but to listen. Craig Robinson is able to negotiate a peace between the Throgs and Tyranos. The Tyranos share a power source so that the Jupiter 2 can blast off. All's well that ends well except for Dr. Smith who mourns the loss of a fortune in diamonds.
